Revolutionary Laser Liposuction
Dr. Andrea Doyle is proud to offer SmartLipo™! SmarLlipo® is an FDA-approved laser liposuction procedure performed in our Rhode Island office under local anesthesia. This revolutionary, minimally-invasive treatment does what no fitness routine can – permanently destroy fat cells. You can finally have the body you’ve always wanted with fast recovery. SmartLipo™ is used to destroy the fat cells beneath the skin, which are gently suctioned out.
The heat produced from the laser stimulates collagen, resulting in tighter, smoother looking skin. Dr. Doyle is able to achieve remarkable body sculpting results with little, if any, downtime. Patients typically see results within 2 weeks and can be back to work the very next day. Patients will see optimal results within 2-3 months.
Dr. Doyle approaches each procedure as a work of art and combines an artistic and holistic approach to achieve only the best in body sculpting. She is committed to taking the time to make sure that each and every patient’s needs and expectations are met through careful consideration and hard work. Since each procedure is done without a general anesthetic, Dr. Doyle shows compassion and patience in making sure that all patients are comfortable before, during, and after each procedure.
What is Smartlipo?
Smartlipo is unique technology that safely delivers three laser wavelengths to permanently destroy fat cells and inspire total confidence. Like liposuction, Smartlipo removes fat from underneath the skin, shrinking body volume and shedding excess tissue. Unlike conventional liposuction, Smartlipo works beyond simple fat removal. Whereas conventional liposuction leaves behind extra tissue and sagging skin, Smartlipo actually tightens the remaining tissue, so the “elephant skin” of weight loss is eliminated. Your worries are left behind, not your skin!
Am I a Candidate?
Smartlipo is perfect for patients who have collected unwanted fat deposits or “bulges.” Because Smartlipo not only removes fat, but also tightens and contours the body, it can dramatically improve overall body shape. Frequently treated areas include the neck, chest (it’s great for male breast enlargement), arms, abdomen, love handles, “back fat” and thighs.
What Can I Expect with Smartlipo?
Depending on the number of areas being treated, the treatment can take an average of 1-3 hours and can be done with local or general anesthesia. Dramatic results are achieved with only one treatment and can be seen within a week, with continued improvement over 3–6 months. Most patients are able to return to normal activities within a day or two— and every student, parent, and professional knows how valuable time is.
What is Smartlipo® Laser Liposuction?
The Smartlipo® TPX system is minimally invasive and provides the optimal blend of three laser wavelengths to disrupt fat cells at the source to remove fat and tighten the skin. It is one of the most advanced laser-assisted lipolysis available today and is a welcome addition to the Centre for Aesthetic + Reconstructive Surgery. The laser fat removal procedure even stimulates the growth of new collagen, which tightens tissue, unlike traditional liposuction which can cause dimpling or sagging skin.
Smartlipo® was designed with safety and consistency in mind and has a smart delivery system that allows your physician to minimize discomfort and customize treatment to your specific needs. There’s also little downtime with this minimally invasive procedure–most people can return to everyday activities after just a few days.
How does Smartlipo® work?
This laser-assisted lipolysis procedure utilizes a small tube (or cannula) about the size of the tip of a pen. This small cannula is inserted beneath the skin through a tiny incision where the laser can directly target fat. As the laser attacks these fat cells they are damaged and the remaining liquefied fat is gently suctioned out.
The Smartlipo® system’s small laser also seals blood vessels as it zaps fat, minimizing any bruising, bleeding, or swelling, and the treatment only requires the use of local anesthesia, so patients don’t have to worry about the time and risk associated with traditional liposuction with general anesthesia.
What areas can Smartlipo® treat?
The Smartlipo® TPX system effectively changes what diet and exercise can’t. Not only is this laser liposuction procedure safer, but it can also be more effective at treating more delicate areas of the body. It effectively targets fat in the abdomen, buttocks, arms, legs, and even face and neck. This means Smartlipo® can work as a less invasive, non-surgical alternative to neck lifts and facelifts in patients with good skin elasticity.
